Access: PLEASE STAY AWAY UNTIL THE SPREAD OF SARS-CoV-2 (Coronavirus) IS HALTED

As of March 2020, the Bishop community is struggling with an unmanageable influx of climbers. Because of the rapid spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, there is major concern that Bishop's small medical facilities will be stretched to breaking point with local illness, before factoring in the additional problem of visitors falling ill or getting injured.

Please stay away from Bishop until the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 ("Coronavirus") is halted!

Please read this post for more details.
